Especially if you don't work during typical business hours, you may want quick access to a weapon while you're sleeping.
65% of burglaries occur between 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m, when you're less likely to be at home - which also means that 45% happen at other times. Don't run the risk of letting a home invader catch you asleep and disarmed. Here are five great bedside holster systems.
No reason not to start this list with the big guns! For a reliable and inexpensive way to mount that 12-gauge at your side, buy or build a shotgun bracket like this:
You can use a gun magnet almost anywhere, which makes it perfect for the bed, bedside table, or wherever you want to mount your weapon in your bedroom. Rated for 25 pounds, the Tac-Mag gun magnet will do the trick.
Simple and very easy to draw from, this ambidextrous bedside holster will fit most full-sized and compact handguns, as well as many subcompact pistols.
I know what you're thinking: "Where are the safes?! I can't just leave a loaded gun unsecured in my bedroom!" Between this and the next list item, you should be able to get what you need. The drop down safe is a favorite for many gun owners because of how conveniently positioned the gun is once the safe is opened. GunVault makes rock-solid and very quiet drop down safes with either a combination or biometric lock.
This is a tried and true system that is used by many Americans who need to keep their guns secured. Priced about $80 less than the biometric drop down safe, this safe will fit inside your nightstand drawer if you choose to store it there.
